Faculty and students affiliated with MSU’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism are featuring a multi-media program to explain research and innovations for better feeding the world on Nov. 13.
The event showcases communication elements of the Translational Scholar Corps., a program developed with Michigan State University’s Global Center for Food Systems Innovation. The program explains global food problems and solutions in part by improving researchers’ ability to tell their own story.
It also builds skills among communications students who help tell such stories while gaining knowledge of the issues. Much of the program’s work is featured on The Food Fix website.
This week’s event includes sneak peaks of a documentary of a cross-disciplinary, multi-cultural education program in the markets of Malawi and of a report on food system innovations in rural India.
It will also explain the program’s broad outreach with podcasts, training, images, blogs, news articles, mini-documentaries and researcher-produced video stories.
The one-hour event starts at 12:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, in 134-D Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University. Pizza and pop are served.
The event is open to the public, but please RSVP to Translational Scholar Corps. Director David Poulson at firstname.lastname@example.org so that sufficient food is arranged.
